Scenic Lift Rides/Hiking
Come to West Mountain and enjoy a Scenic Chairlift Ride and Hike to enjoy the views!
Our Scenic Chairlift Rides to the Mountain-Top offer stunning views of the Adirondack and Vermont mountains and the Hudson River Valley region. A scenic lift ride is the perfect way to see the beautiful region in a whisk. Once you arrive at the top of the mountain, we suggest hiking on our designated mixed-use scenic and Green (Easy) “Crow’s Nest” trail and hike down the mountain to the Main Lodge on our mixed-use (Easy) “Slideshow” trail to take it all in, or take the chairlift down to the Main Lodge. Please wear appropriate athletic footwear. It’s fun and fitness for the whole family, a group of friends, or romantic outing! We also have several games and food and beverage at the Main Base Area. We will open for Scenic Chairlift Rides on weekends in June beginning June 6, 2020 and 7 days a week beginning July 6, 2020.
